How to disable the USB ports


 

You may need to disable the USB ports on a computer to prevent anyone from using any USB devices with a computer. In work environments, disabling USB ports can help prevent any USB drives being connected to a computer, which could be used to steal company information or infect that computer and potentially other computers on the network with viruses or other malware.
Disable the USB ports through BIOS setup
Enter the BIOS setup.
Once in the BIOS setup check the menus for an option to enable or disable the onboard USB ports.
Make sure all USB and Legacy USB Support is disabled or off.
Once the changes are made save and exit. Typically this is the F10 key.
